1 St George s Anglican Church Malvern 20 th Sunday after Pentecost 11 October 2015 Sentence. There is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields, for Jesus sake, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this age, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. Mark Collect of the day God of the narrow way, you call us to shed all that burdens the lightness of life: help us to surrender false wealth, embrace our need of you and live for your kingdom above all things; through Jesus Christ, the richness of God. Amen. A reading from the prophet Amos At a time of prosperity and when Israel was relying more on military might than God, Amos the shepherd was called to preach a hard word in a smooth time. The times were unjust and immoral, shallow piety had become a meaningless sham. In this passage Amos makes clear that there is yet time to seek the Lord and live. Seek the Lord and live, or he will break out against the house of Joseph like fire, and it will devour Bethel, with no one to quench it. Ah, you that turn justice to wormwood, and bring righteousness to the ground! They hate the one who reproves in the gate, and they abhor the one who speaks the truth. Therefore, because you trample on the poor and take from them levies of grain, you have built houses of hewn stone, but you shall not live in them; you have planted pleasant vineyards, but you shall not drink their wine. 1

2 For I know how many are your transgressions, and how great are your sins you who afflict the righteous, who take a bribe, and push aside the needy in the gate. Therefore the prudent will keep silent in such a time; for it is an evil time. Seek good and not evil, that you may live; and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you, just as you have said. Hate evil and love good, and establish justice in the gate; it may be that the Lord, the God of hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph. Amos 9.6-7, Reader Hear the word of the Lord Thanks be to God Psalm APBA, page 318. The psalmist prays the people may learn wisdom and thus God will be able to deliver Israel from its difficulties. A reading from the letter to the Hebrews. The Word of God is not primarily a written word but God s activity. This reaches its fullest expression in Jesus, the Word of God made flesh as John says, our high priest who is appointed by God and who understands our human weakness the two qualities that count. The word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And before him no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one to whom we must render an account. Since, then, we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with 2

3 boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews Reader May your word live in us And bear much fruit to your glory Gospel Acclamation Alleluia, alleluia! Jesus said: Many who are first will be last, and the last will be first. Alleluia, alleluia! Reader The Lord be with you And also with you Reader A reading from the holy gospel according to Mark. Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ This is a sad story. The young man desires to be a follower of Jesus but cannot give up what holds him back. But nothing compares to the freedom and joy of leaving baggage behind and going where God goes. As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life? Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: You shall not murder; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; you shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother. He said to him, Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth. Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me. When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions. Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God! And the disciples were perplexed at these words. But Jesus said to them again, Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God. They were 3

4 greatly astounded and said to one another, Then who can be saved? Jesus looked at them and said, For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible. Peter began to say to him, Look, we have left everything and followed you. Jesus said, Truly I tell you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields, for my sake and for the sake of the good news, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this age houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and fields, with persecutions and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first. Mk Reader For the Gospel of the Lord Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ PRAYER FOR THE WEEK. Almighty God, in your wisdom you have so ordered our earthly life that we must walk by faith and not by sight: give us such trust in your fatherly care that in the face of all perplexities we may give proof of our faith by the courage of our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BIBLE READINGS NEXT SUNDAY St Luke, evangelist and martyr Jeremiah Psalm Timothy a Luke We will celebrate the parish s ministry to Cabrini Hospital next Sunday.
